Azets, the UK’s largest regional accountancy and business advisor to SMEs, has appointed Chris Horne as Deputy Chief Executive Officer and will support Chief Executive Officer Dawn Marriott on the development and expansion of the business across Europe and the UK.
Chris Horne was Managing Partner for Azets in Scotland and Northern England and had previously led the Scottish firm Campbell Dallas through a period of rapid organic growth and the acquisition of six leading independent firms in Scotland.
Dawn Marriott, Chief Executive Officer at Azets, commented:
“On behalf of the business I would like to congratulate Chris on his promotion. He brings considerable experience in the development of a fast-growing accountancy firm and will play a key role as we expand Azets both internationally and across the UK.”
Newly appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer Chris Horne added:
“I am delighted to have been appointed to this exciting new role at Azets and I’m looking forward to working with the Senior Leadership Team to drive the growth and development of the business. Azets is already the largest regional adviser to SMEs in the UK and provider of outsourced accounting in the Nordics and we are well-known as a leading provider of digitally-led accounting and advisory services. This creates a strong platform to grow our business. We will do this by providing efficient compliance services, smart commercial advice to clients and lots of career opportunities. As a relatively new name on the accountancy landscape, we are ideally placed to attract new recruits who are looking for a great career. We are very much looking forward to the challenge.”
